Saudi Journalist Tortured to Death in Prison

from The Anti Media:

(MEMO) — Saudi journalist and writer Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser has died after being tortured while in detention, the New Khaleej reported yesterday.

Reporting human rights sources, the news site said that Al-Jasser was arrested and tortured to death after Saudi authorities claimed he administered the Twitter account Kashkool, which disclosed rights violations committed by the Saudi authorities and royal family.

The sources said that the authorities identified Al-Jasser as the admin using spies in Twitter’s regional office located in Dubai. He was arrested in March.

Saudis Might Embrace A ‘Take-The-Money-And-Run’ Strategy Post Khashoggi

by Steve H Hanke, Market Oracle:

Since the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, oil prices have plunged by 11.92%. Just today, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) shed 4.56%. At present, WTI is trading at $66.05/bbl. That’s well below the high for the past year of $76.90. It’s also well below my forecast for the year’s end price of $75/bbl.

To shed some light on what might be driving the crude oil market, let’s use the flickering candle of the economics of production. The economic production rate for oil is determined by the following equation: P – V = MC, where P is the current market price of a barrel of oil, V is the present value of a barrel of reserves, and MC is the marginal recovery cost of a barrel of oil.

Gunned Down For Believing In Christ: The Mainstream Media Is Silent As The Persecution Of Christians Escalates

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The global persecution of Christians continues to escalate dramatically, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is virtually silent about it.  In this article, I am going to quote a lot of sources, but they are all either overseas news outlets or Christian websites in the United States.  To a certain extent, I think that the mainstream media is extremely hesitant to report about the global persecution of Christians because it may cause the general public to feel sympathetic, and that would definitely be counterproductive to what they are trying to accomplish.  Ultimately, the elite are trying to demonize Christians, conservatives, patriots and anyone else that would attempt to oppose their radical agenda for America.  So they are banning us from their Internet platforms, they are mocking us on their news and entertainment programs, and they certainly don’t want to highlight the fact that the persecution of Christians is escalating rapidly around the globe.

Feds ‘Wanted To Get Rid Of’ Whitey Bulger, Ex-Con Claims

from ZeroHedge:

Apparently, we’re not the only ones who believe the circumstance surrounding Whitey Bulger’s jailhouse slaying are suspect in the extreme. First, that federal authorities would abruptly move an 89-year-old inmate in ill health to a new maximum security prison seemingly on a whim seemed odd. But the fact that Bulger was placed in general population instead of protective custody was either an act of staggering incompetence, or, more likely, an intentional ‘oversight’. And now, an ex-con-turned-journalist told the New York Post in an interview that he also believes the killing was a set-up probably planned by federal authorities to get rid of a problem witness.

Robert Mueller Stood to Gain the Most from the Murder of Whitey Bulger-The Damning Evidence

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

James “Whitey” Bulger, who was captured in 2011 after 16 years on the run, was found dead at a high security facility in West Virginia.

Robert Mueller plays a prominent role in this story and could Mueller be connected to his mysterious death? How does Bulger go into a secure facility and is killed on the first day? The bottom line is, Robert Mueller played a prominent role in the reason why Bulger got away with criminal enterprising and murder for as long as he did. And we are entrusting the man who made Bulger’s antics possible to continue to investigate our President in an investigation that hasnt yielded on shred of evidence against Trump in nearly two years?

With the death of Whitey Bulger, Mueller is able to erase much of his criminal past and associations with the mafia in Boston. You don’t believe it? The evidence is overwhelming and Mueller stood to gain the most from Whitey Bulger’s murder.

Boston Mobster Whitey Bulger Killed in Prison – Sources Say He Was About To Out FBI Officials, Maybe Robert Mueller?

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Boston mob boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger, 89, was murdered by a fellow inmate with ties to the mafia in a West Virginia federal prison shortly after he was transferred there.  According to one congressman, Mueller and those serving under him in the FBI aided Bulger in eliminating mob competitors and recently Mueller turned over an alleged scheme to pay off women to fabricate sexual assault allegations against him to the FBI.

MURDERED DOCTORS, CANCER ENZYMES, AND VACCINES

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Earlier this week I blogged about two articles that seemed to imply a kind of “connection” for my normal daily dose of high octane speculation. And today is no different, as Mr. C.S., Mr. S.D. and Mr. S.D.D. (two different people) shared two different articles, and once again, my suspicion meter is in the red zone. First, Mr. S.D.D. shared this one about a strange new malady appearing in infants around the country:

War Plans on Iran Mean Trump and Saudis Coordinating Cover-up of Khashoggi Killing

by Finian Cunningham, Strategic Culture:

Finally, nearly three weeks after what most of the world suspected to be a foul murder, the Saudi regime has officially admitted that Jamal Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. No sooner had the Saudis issued their latest lie to cover up previous lies, US President Trump was lending White House prestige to the travesty.

Trump said the belated Saudi version of what happened was “credible”. He also welcomed as “good first steps” the Saudi arrest of 18 individuals and sacking of several top officials.

The Saudi “explanation” of Khashoggi’s death stretches credulity to snapping point. They are saying he was killed after a fist-fight broke out in the consulate. The Saudis are also claiming the de facto ruler of the kingdom, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS), did not know anything about the murder, its planning or aftermath. Recall that MbS asserted in an interview with Bloomberg on October 5 that Khashoggi had walked out of the consulate the same day he arrived.

Meet The Saudi “Hit Squad” That Murdered Jamal Khashoggi

from ZeroHedge:

Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman achieved a symbolic victory in his struggle to survive the diplomatic fallout from murder of Saudi citizen and dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi: He met with members of Khashoggi’s family, including his young son, who is not allowed to leave Saudi Arabia, and even managed to take advantage of a photo-op with Khashoggi’s young son, who has been barred from leaving the country, per Reuters.

Meanwhile, the 18 men arrested by the Saudi government for their alleged involvement in Khashoggi’s killing, which the Saudi public prosecutor said over the weekend resulted from a “botched interrogation”. While 5 senior intelligence officials have also been dismissed, it appears that these 18 men will suffer the consequences for Khashoggi’s murder. Sources within the kingdom have confirmed that the 15 men identified by Turkish investigators were among the 18 who were arrested. US officials last month said they would revoke the visas of 21 men suspected of involvement in the killing.

Saudi Crown Prince Spoke To Khashoggi By Phone Moments Before He Was Killed: Report

from The Duran:

In the latest bombshell report involving the Khashoggi murder, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reportedly spoke on the phone with journalist Jamal Khashoggi moments before he was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkish pro-government daily Yeni Safak disclosed the new alleged details of the case in a report on Sunday, contradicting claims by Saudi authorities that Prince Mohammed played no part in Khashoggi’s murder.

“Khashoggi was detained by the Saudi team inside the consulate building. Then Prince Mohammed contacted Khashoggi by phone and tried to convince him to return to Riyadh,” the report said.

Bombshell: Khashoggi Remains Discovered In Garden Of Saudi Consul General’s Home: Sky News

from ZeroHedge:

Hours after Turkish President Erdogan demanded that Saudi Arabia disclose the whereabouts of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s remains, body parts reportedly belonging to Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky sources, though the exact location wasn’t revealed. According to anonymous sources cited by Sky News, the writer had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured.”

One source suggested that Khashoggi’s remains had been discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home. “Why has the body of someone who was officially said to be killed not been found yet?” Erdogan asked during his speech at Turkey’s parliament on Tuesday.

The Saudis Keep Changing Their Story on the Murder of Khashoggi. What Should We Do?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

The Saudi version of the disappearance and murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi seems to change every day or so. The latest is the Saudi government claim that the opposition journalist was killed in a “botched interrogation” at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Or was it a fist-fight? What is laughable is that the Saudi king has placed Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, a prime suspect, in charge of the investigation of Khashoggi’s murder!

Though the official story keeps changing, what is unlikely to change is Washington’s continued relationship with Saudi Arabia. It is a partnership that is in no way beneficial to Americans or the US national interest.
